Grange Arch on the Purbeck ridgeway
Grange Arch on the Purbeck ridgeway, taken 11 years ago
This folly (or "eye catcher") was built on the Purbeck ridgeway in the 1740s by the then owner of Creech Grange, Denis Bond. The structure is also known as "Creech Folly". A strip has been cleared through the trees of Great Wood on the northern hillslope so that the arch can clearly be seen from the house at Creech Grange below. The National Trust now own the site, which is on the northern side of the track along the spine of the ridgeway.
